    The easiest way i can tell you is take 1 unit and what you would charge to do it and X it by 66. Get a number and go from there.

    For this type of situation we would charge about $10 per unit unless they are all gated and fenced seperately. So you look at about $600 per mow times the number of mowes. Then add on 60 bags of fertilize and get estimate for weed spraying(about $800) twice a year. This type of unit can make you a lot of money in extra stuff..irrigation, tree trimming, drainage problems, extra plantings, etc.
